would we be able to use the user agent accessibility guidelines to draw
up a matrix for user agents?

The authoring tool group does ad-hoc reviews of tools - mostly for
their own work rather than as a reference:

The WCAG group tried to produce such a reference but apparently didn't
the resources to keep it going. (It's real goal was to answer the
arising from checkpoints that start "until user agents..." by tracking
user agents did whatever the checkpoint required.)

There are other groups who produce such matrices. The W3C Quality
activity may have more information - http://www.w3.org/QA/
